Adam Silver is the perfect man for the job. In his first few months as NBA Commissioner, he had to address a problem that the NBA owners let grow: Donald Sterling. You see, when an owner of a professional sports franchise refers to people of other races as enemies, you just watched the metaphorical cat jump out of the bag.
And what did Adam Silver do to Donald Sterling? Banned him for life from the NBA! That’s not an overhand right from Tyson, that’s Tyson with 2×4. Sterling is now banned from any and all basketball activities pertaining to anything NBA related. He still owns the team – for now. But that may actually be coming to an end soon too.
If you’re ancy to get right to the banning (it’s ok to admit it), jump right to the 2:13 mark. And watch Silver’s facial expression and eyes when he says, “for life!” I like this guy. A lot.
Most years, the road to the NBA Finals is pretty tame. Even when Michael Jordan graced the friendly skies of the United Center, he didn’t have too much trouble making it to the finals. And then came this year. A brink of potential madness that ebbed and overturned not a briny washup of minor timing and opportunity, but rather two pearls: the Duncan-led San Antonio Spurs and His Majesty King James’ Miami Heat.

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr and Mrs Tobias Funke. We are less than four freaking days until the long awaited Season 4 (are we calling it a “season”?) of arguably one of the best television shows in history, Arrested Development. The cast has been filming around the clock, and when they’re not recording episodes, they’re jumping in front of the camera taking interviews to ratchet up the marketing plan. If you don’t have Netflix digital yet, what in the world are you waiting for? Do you realize this amazing show will be live in less than four days? And are you also aware that a Netflix digital subscription only costs $8 freaking dollars? No, we’re not on commission, but maybe we should be. I can’t wait! Enjoy the Funke family interview, and we’ll have more to follow!
In just 15 short days, Arrested Development will be back on the airwaves courtesy of the fine folks over at Netflix digital; if you haven’t signed up for Netflix yet, you’re wrong; it only costs like $9 per month. On top of that, you can easily Google for a free trial and simply start it up on May 26th; that should get you at least a few episodes for free if you’re that cheap. So in honor of this rapidly approaching, monumental date in TV history, I present to you the unofficial 200 greatest quotes video from Arrested Development. This will be the best ten minutes you spend all day, that is, unless you decide you want to hang out around SQ longer; then your day will be even sweeter.
According to the show’s creator, Adam Reed, “Archer” can be described as “James Bond meets Arrested Development”. As a huge fan of both, I can emphatically say that if you haven’t seen this incredibly hilarious show yet, you’re wrong. Since its inception in 2010, Archer has stormed up the ratings charts not only on FX, but on television, and just recently completed its fourth season on the air, with a fifth already signed and on the books. That’s news that makes this guy smile.
Is it May 26th yet? If you’ve never seen the epic television series that is Arrested Development, then you have approximately 27.5 days to catch up. Oh, you’re going to need $8 bucks for a digital subscription to Netflix, because the long-awaited fourth season won’t be airing anywhere else. Embedded above you’ll find a clip that was originally released only to the media back in January, but now stands as the first official new Bluth family footage since the end of season three. Enjoy the exclusive outtake, and hit the link below for more AR memories.
How people are still into magicians is beyond me; the whole “magic show” thing faded off my interest list as a kid right around the time I realized that the WWF (now WWE) was fake, and for the same reasons. Regardless, dudes still enjoy putting on those goofy, glittery, full-bodied leotards and getting on stage in front of at times, thousands of paying customers. It’s pretty amazing, really. Well, there’s a new magician/heist thriller en route to your local theater on May 31st entitled, Now You See Me, starring an impressive list of stars that should equate to a decent showing at the box office: Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eikenberg (who still looks like Mark Zuckerberg), Isla Fisher, and Michael Caine. Based on this brand new TV spot that was released hours ago today, the film looks more along the lines of an “Oceans 1x” movie, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however while this magic meets bank robber flick may boast a solid cast, it has nothing on the Oceans films.
